Apart from the sleek black body and silver side design, one of the main attractions of the 9600LS model is the blue light LCD display along with the sensor touch control panel. The LCD display has a blue background light with black readings that illuminates with a sophisticated look. The touch sensors help the user to control all cooking modes with a simple touch and also provides an additional advantage when it comes to swift cleaning.

DUXTOP LCD 9600LS Review

Controls

The controls include an ON/OFF button, a MENU button, and a “+/-” button on the right side of the LCD display. To the left of the display are the LOCK button, TIMER button, the BOIL and KEEP WARM buttons. The menu button switches between the power mode and the temperature mode. By selecting either one of the modes, you can change its value by pressing the “+/-” button. The lock button is provided to make the controls child proof. That is, once the lock button is pressed, you cannot change the controls by pressing any other button. The lock button will again have to be pressed for 3 seconds to undo it.

Power

Looks are not the only characteristic that makes the DUXTOP 9600LS worthy. The cooktop has a Wattage of a whopping 1800 Watts. The best part is that there are 20 power levels that start from a 100 Watts to 1800 Watts. This helps to customize your cooking style to warm, boil, saute, or deep fry in the required settings.

Temperature

Like the power mode, the temperature mode is also distributed in 20 levels. Starting from a warm mode of 100 deg F to a deep heating temperature of 460 deg F, you can choose the required temperature by pressing the increment/decrement button. The additional preset temperature touch controls called “Boil” and “Keep Warm” are also provided for easy use. The “Keep Warm” one touch button has an inset temperature of 140 deg F and holds the temperature for 30 minutes.

Timer

The built-in countdown time can be set up for a record breaking 600 minutes!! Though there is now way that any food needs to be cooked that long, the manufacturers must have set a long time to make it unique from other induction cooktops.

Induction Ready Cookware

You just cannot use any regular cooking utensil that you find in your kitchen. You must make sure that the cookwares are induction compatible. That is, if the base of your cookware sticks to a magnet, it is induction compatible. Clad based cookwares are good for induction cooking. But keep in mind that clad based cookwares, being made of multiple metals in the base, make high pitched sounds during high-temperature cooking.
